The Charts: Post Malone debuts with massive first-week sales

Post Malone Hollywood's Bleeding
  • Post Malone‘s new album Hollywood’s Bleeding debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with the biggest streaming week of 2019. His album sold 489,000 units in its first week, led by 365 million on-demand streams (which is equivalent to 278,000 units). This gives Post two of the five biggest streaming weeks ever, as his previous album, Beerbongs & Bentleys, also debuted to massive streaming numbers.

  • All 17 songs from Hollywood’s Bleeding are on the Billboard Hot 100, led by “Goodbyes” featuring Young Thug at No. 3 and “Circles” at No. 4. Both songs were released as singles before the album dropped. Of the new songs debuting this week, “Take What You Want From Me” featuring Ozzy Osbourne and Travis Scott was the highest at No. 8.

  • Lizzo‘s “Truth Hurts” remained at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for the third straight week. Much like “Truth Hurts,” Lil Nas X used DaBaby for a remix of one of his songs, as “Panini” jumped from No. 29 to No. 14.

  • EARTHGANG sold just short of 12,000 units of their new album Mirrorland in the first week. This gives the Dreamville duo the No. 40 spot on the Billboard 200.
